Had dinner and cocktails here with friends. Brilliant food and a really chilled atmosphere. Good selection of food and drink available. It's busy though so worth booking a table if possible.

This is a nice place to eat lunch. The decor is really interesting and there is a friendly atmosphere. There is a large selection on the menu and I was impressed with the vegetarian choices. I had the lentil burger, it was delicious! I would eat here again.

We dropped in for a cocktail late afternoon/early evening. Just the worst service: slow, rude and unco-ordinated. Having taken 25 minutes to ask for our order for 2 pisco sours, when they arrived I was asked to pay immediately and note that I must know the table was booked in 55 minutes. Fine - but no more on the table.... More

Like this bar/restaurant. It has definitely traveler atmosphere. The interier is more african style, but in modern time :) they have really nice beer, tea or coffee. If I will be in Ghent I will go here again!

We had booked a table for five, we were shown to a small table for four & a small footstool was placed at the end with no room really for a placemat & cutlery. We had quite a wait for our food which was understandable as it was busy. When it arrived one dish was a wrong order so was... More

For a so called international place which incorporates world cuisine the food we had was really bland. Chili con carne should have some chili in it hence the name and the pasta dish was very bland too even the chorizo was quite tasteless. Friendly place but in future we'll just go there for a drink.
